Crane is a Docker orchestration tool similar to Docker Compose with extra features.
For example, it offers ultra-fast, dependency-free bind-mounts for Docker on Mac, with a speed boost of at least 10x!

Compatibility Notes

While Crane can read Docker Compose configuration files (version 3), it differs in behaviour. Please make sure to read through the docs to compare. In addition, not all configuration options are fully supported yet:

  • depends_on - accepts only array at the moment
  • build - only accepts an object, not a string (see #327)

Moreover, some options are not supported at all or don't make sense in the context of Crane, and will be ignored if present:

  • domainname
  • ulimits
  • container_name
  • deploy
  • secrets
